THE GUERRILLA ANGEL REPORT: Baltimore Ravens linebacker Brendon Ayanbadejo on transgender right: “. . . Let’s just treat everyone equally. Let’s move on. Let’s evolve as a culture, as a people.”
After winning the Superbowl, Ayanbadejo didn’t head to Disneyland, he instead went on CNN to talk about his LGBT rights advocacy. Last year he vocally supported the Maryland same sex marriage bill which is now law and he commented further on his support for it.
A trans rights bill has been proposed in the Maryland Assembly and Ayanbadejo’s comments apparently was in response to that.
The NFL isn’t exactly an entity where these things are openly discussed, so that door is open a bit wider now thanks to Ayanbadejo and other players more concerned with their fellow citizens than just themselves.
